The XviD codec can be found here, but you shouldn't be editing with XviD (Huffyuv, Lagarith, or mjpegs are better). Some of the frames in XviD video need the information contained in a previous frame, and if you edit that frame away then the footage can become difficult to work with.

Also, XviD source usually means fansubs, and that isn't good for quality. Buy the DVDs, support the industry that provides you with source. The majority of the time, they provide the best footage quality.

if you have a fansub, i assure you it's not dvd quality. may look like it to the untrained eye though.
solution: buy dvds.

I am a beginner :oops: , its better to practice with what's in my hands, then apply it to the original.. Those files are an avi files, is there any other way to open them other than that? :(

*facepalm*

In general, renaming file extensions just to get certain programs to accept them is only asking for trouble later on.

Here's a step-by-step guide:

Ignore the AVISynth part; just load your AVI files into VDubMod instead. The process of actually compressing the clips with HuffYUV/Lagarith will still be the same.

Really? I got the dvd's but their copy protected! I am not into decieveing copy protection, so i use fansubs. yeah, Premeir is not always happy with Xvid and stuff. I find it works perfect with Divx however

Use DVD decrypter. I'll has a workaround for the copy protection. I have yet to have it fail.

Xvid, and DIVX are pretty much conceptually the same when it comes to editing. It's a compressed file. Vegas, might work well with divx and what all, but premiere hates it. Hates it like Gollum hates the sunlight.

Try to avoid using fansubs. They are usually compressed, lossy and tend to have those pesky subtitles in them. There ARE raw HD captures that are DVD quality, but somehow I doubt that you're using them.
